The rumors are true: Prince William and Kate Middleton's YouTube channel has just launched! The couple announced their new project via the Kensington Royal Twitter account on May 5, much to the delight of royal fans everywhere.

The couple announced the news with a fun video clip, inviting their legions of royal fans to come and subscribe to their channel. We don't know about you, but we don't think it'll take them too long to pass the one million subscribers mark. 

In the 25-second clip, Prince William joked to his wife, "By the way be careful what you say now because these guys, they're filming everything", to which Duchess Catherine responded, "I know!"

The candid footage was followed by a montage of some of the couple's many public engagements around the world, accompanied by some jazzy music.
